Mirror of self

Group show with works by Elina Brotherus
HANGAR Photo Art Center, Brussels
January 26, 2023 - March 25, 2023

After ‘In the Shadow of trees’ in 2021, ‘Mirror of self’ is the 7th thematic exhibition created by Hangar within the framework of PhotoBrussels Festival.

The exhibition consists of both selected artists (17 of them) and winners of a call for projects (6 of them).

23 artists are exhibited at Hangar on the theme of self-portrait. Among them, 8 are under 30 years old.

What is the current standing of the self-portrait in the world of contemporary photography? In the realm of selfies, what does the artistic practice of self-portrait still hold? Through various projects and artistic approaches, Mirror of Self questions the representation of the self, whether in a quest for identity, a relationship with one’s environment, with others or with oneself.
